“O, how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day,
Which now shows all the beauty of the sun,
And by and by a cloud takes all away!”
Only an hour inland from Venice by high speed train, the pretty medieval Italian city of Verona lies in the Northern Veneto region.
Chances are, the first thing that springs to mind when the “City of Love” is mentioned are the world’s favourite star crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet. And while it may be true that Shakespeare based his play on historical families from Verona, there are a lot more things to see and experience in this surprising city.
We did an overnight trip before heading back to Venice, but we will definitely be returning to spend more time there!
